What: Start'Up Lycee | Food for good: transforming food into a vehicle for change
When: JAN 14, 15 and 16 2021
Where: Online (JAN 14 and 15) • ORT campus (JAN 16) TBD
Who: Gr 10 students
Each year Start'Up Lycee, a required group project based program, is organized at the LFSF to introduce Gr 10 students to the process of a startup launch.
As an integral part of the curriculum in Economics and Social Sciences (SES), Start'Up Lycee is an opportunity for students to expand the skills acquired during the school year (research, written argumentation, oral presentation "pitching") and propose their own solutions to a contemporary issue. This is a chance for them to practice their skills in a practical way, and to prepare for their higher education and eventually for their professional future.
This year, the theme is "Food for good : Transforming food into a vehicle for change". Students will have to identify a problem for which they will have to find solutions which create jobs, stimulate the economies, reimagine supply chains, and improve outcomes for 10,000,000 people by 2030.
Start’Up Lycee 2021 kicks off online on JAN 14 2021 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. Students will be introduced to the startup environment and will start imagining their project. Teams are coached by professionals (including LFSF Parents) from the Silicon Valley.
Start’Up Lycee 2021 takes place online on JAN 15 January and on the Ortega campus on JAN 16 from 9:00am till 6:00pm (TBC) .
During those days, students will develop a product (a good, a service, an app...) that makes positions itself against its competitors and develop their business plan.
At the end of the weekend, they will pitch their project in front of a jury of professionals who will choose the three most viable projects. Then the awarded projects can be developed until the end of the school year.
